(Click here to skip the explanations and view the steps to finding a Canadian online pharmacy)
If you’ve seen one of the latest FDA press releases regarding Canadian pharmacies, you might be a little confused on how to find one. The FDA seems to acknowledge that there are legitimate – and therefore safe – Canadian pharmacies accessible online. Here’s what they say (with one word italicized by us):
“Don’t order medicines from web sites that claim to be Canadian pharmacies. Most are not legitimate pharmacies, and the drugs they supply are illegal and potentially dangerous.
Claiming to be a Canadian pharmacy is one of the hallmarks of Internet sites that sell illegal prescription drugs which, in many cases, are not made in Canada at all, but in a number of other countries. (Even if an online Canadian pharmacy is legitimate, in general, U.S. citizens cannot legally import prescription drugs from other countries. But that’s a separate issue. We’re talking here about fraud).”
The FDA’s focus on protecting you from online pharmacy fraud is commendable because that’s where the real health and safety threats reside. Since they don’t tell you how to find a legitimate, real Canadian pharmacy, we’re providing you with facts and guidance to help you make the right decisions for your health and prescription savings. Let’s remember, brand name medications sold in Canada and other non-U.S. pharmacies are often astronomically cheaper than ones here at home.
The FDA is right that rogue pharmacy sites pretending to be Canadian ship drugs from all over the world, but its communications may confuse you. It states that many sites “sell illegal prescription drugs which, in many cases, are not made in Canada at all, but in a number of other countries.” That’s true, but they’re making foreign manufactured drugs sound scary when they aren’t; about 40% of prescription drugs sold in U.S. pharmacies are imported from many countries, especially generic drugs from India. Eighty percent of the active pharmaceutical ingredients of all so called “American” drugs are imported, with many, if not most, coming from India and China.
The big mantra and scare tactic among big pharma, FDA, and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, which represents U.S. pharmacy regulatory authorities, is that you might not be getting drugs shipped from Canada when you order from a “Canadian online pharmacy.” That’s true but if the online pharmacy is real and not a fake Canadian online pharmacy then it may be perfectly safe.
Here are some pertinent facts: pharmacies in many countries sell brand name drug products produced in either one or a small number of factories run or contracted by multinational drug companies throughout the world. Unless the big pharmaceutical companies are hiding something, there’s no difference in the quality of their medications whether it’s sold in Canada, the United Kingdom, India, Barbados, Turkey, or Mars.
Verified Canadian online pharmacies often partner with pharmacies in other countries like New Zealand, Australia, or Turkey, but they do so to get you the lowest prices not to rip you off.
But if you want to get your prescription drug online from Canada, not another country, here’s what you do…
Step 1: Make Sure the Online Pharmacy is Verified…Actually Verified
Members in the PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program display our seal on their website. Just seeing the seal isn’t good enough, you need to click it, and make sure the resulting popup is a pharmacychecker.com address:
Popup (note the pharmacychecker.com address in the red oval):
Step 2: Ask the online pharmacy to ship your medication from Canada
On their websites, Canadian online pharmacies will often but not always show you the Canadian pharmacy price, along with prices at pharmacies in other countries. If they don’t then call them and let them know that you only want the medication sold from a licensed Canadian pharmacy. It may be more or less expensive than their partner pharmacy in Australia, New Zealand, or Turkey, but they’ll oblige you. Reputable Canadian online pharmacies will always tell you where the product is dispensed from. Gabe’s (the author’s) dad gets his meds from Canada – yes, a REAL Canadian pharmacy, because it happens to have a very low price for the drug he takes.
We’re glad to see that the FDA and drug companies actually do believe that Canadian pharmacies are safe. Amen to that! You can use PharmacyChecker.com to find a safe online pharmacy.Canadian pharmacies, FDA, NABP, phrma
I posted a comment on Facebook regarding North West Pharmacy which I had an unpleasant experience with. I contacted them regarding zoloft brand name and specifically told them I do not want zoloft from any place other than UK which they assured me they could get at the price they quoted me. When it came it was DAXID from India, which they will tell you is produced by Phizer in India, however I can’t take this medication. When I called to complain they said that getting from the UK would be too expensive and could not give it to me at the cost they quoted. I had to return the current Rx to UK (their base) and now I wait for my refund. I personally feel there is too much of Bait and Switch in the range of Canadian Pharmacies. email@example.com
Our program’s members are licensed pharmacies, dispense real medication, and require prescriptions. Northwestpharmacy did require your prescription and you were mailed a genuine version of sertraline marketed by Pfizer – and I believe they provided you a refund
Regardless, apparently your experience wasn’t a good one and we’ll be sure to monitor more closely the company from which you ordered. The online pharmacies in our program are required to disclose the location of the dispensing pharmacy to consumers under our program’s terms. When we can corroborate policy breaches by online pharmacy members we take appropriate action against them.
They also treated me poorly. Since they can no longer take credit cards, they said a faxed check will be just as fast. I then ordered $560 worth of meds. They then emailed me that since my order was over $500, the would hold it until my check cleared, 5-10 business days. This makes no sense. First, tell us what the $ limit is so we can adjust our order. Second, is $560 really a much greater risk than $500. Either way, doesn’t my bank transfer the money to them electronically. I cancelled my order. They could care less.
Hey Have which Canadian pharmacy does your father use??
Hi Bart –
I’m not going to promote one international online pharmacy over another.
I am from SE Connecticut and have a friend who lives here also, and his wife, who retired from Pfizer in Groton Ct. has had good results in ordering generic Viagra from Northwestpharmacy. Is Northwestpharmacy on your approved list?
Hi Ray, At this time, we are not monitoring NorthWestPharmacy.com so we cannot comment about this online pharmacy. Click to read an AskPC answer, Is an online pharmacy that is no longer verified by PharmacyChecker unsafe?, which talks about what it means when we no longer monitor an online pharmacy: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/ask-pc/is-an-online-pharmacy-that-is-no-longer-verified-by-pharmacychecker-unsafe/ For a list of PharmacyChecker-verified online pharmacies, click: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp We strongly recommend that you stick to online pharmacies verified and continually monitored by a certification group.
I did not see Northwest Pharmacy in your list today, 6/14/2018. Have you removed Northwest from your list of verified pharmacies?
NorthWestPharmacy.com is no longer on our list as they chose to opt out of our verification program.
The PharmacyChecker Verification Program is a voluntary program in which online pharmacies can choose to participate. If an online pharmacy that was once verified by PharmacyChecker is no longer, it means it is not currently monitored by PharmacyChecker and either (1) it chose to leave our program or (2) it was terminated from our program due to noncompliance.
Online pharmacies are only approved if they meet and continue to meet our online pharmacy practice standards. Through our Verification Program, we evaluate and verify the qualifications and credentials of online pharmacies, and monitor their compliance of our standards on an ongoing basis.
Most online pharmacies do not meet our program standards, and most of the tens of thousands of online pharmacies are not certified by any credentialing group. Unfortunately, many online pharmacies, many referred to as rogue online pharmacies, do not process orders through licensed pharmacies, illegally and unethically sell controlled substances (addictive drugs), do not require a valid prescription or any prescription at all, intentionally sell counterfeit or adulterated medication, do not safeguard patients’ financial and health information, and/or steal people’s identities.
We strongly recommend that you stick to online pharmacies verified and continually monitored by a certification group but, of course, we have a special preference for PharmacyChecker.com!

I get sertraline a zoloft generic at target 2 x 100 mg tablets per day for 12 dollars a month . DUH WHAT ARE YOU THINKING
That is a copay not the full cash price duh.
I get my generic Zocor for $12 for a 90 day supply at a local pharmacy. Lipitor is also now generic, but not quite as cheap as Zocor.
Their customer relations stink!
I have used Northwest Pharmacy for years and have never had a problem with them or the quality of their meds.
I had the experience with Jan Drugs
I’m on walfAR could I use my care card walfare pays 100% of my medicine
Hi Richard. Welfare does not apply to international online pharmacies. It’s completely out-of-pocket.
My brother is a retired Pharmacist. He buys all of his medications from Canada at a huge savings. He advised me Being from New York State that the Empire Plan run by NY State for it’s Employees and BC BS. Buys it’s drugs from Canada. But NY State Pharmacies can not purchace from Canada. something is wrong with this Picture. Who in the NY State Government is making money off of this? No one will answer this. All Pharmacies should be able to buy Drugs from Canada Eapecially when most of the Drug companies are USA Brands Sold to Canada at Cheaper Prices. Congress must be getting a kickback as it sounds to me. Not even AARP will give me an answer or put me through to someone who has upper level management that will talk to me on this issue. Maybe FOX News will address this issue.
What company does your brother buy from. I have to pay 117.00 for one month supply and I can’t afford my blood pressure medicine at this price
The U.S. Government is a 100% corupt inverted totalitarian police-state that needs to be carpet-bombed with nuclear weapons.
Well, that sounds a bit extreme – I’m all in favor of creating a climate for people to influence and direct the government. Can’t say I’m a big fan of nuclear attacks and mass killings. Unless, perhaps you’re sitting on top of the Washington Monument at the time.
Hate to lose such an enlightened thinker, but maybe society could endure.
This was negotiated into our healthcare system by Big Pharma. I was astonished that this passed the laugh test in Congress. The reason the Healthcare companies went along was that they were lured by the prospect of selling so many more healthcare plans that they knew their profits would go up. It is all due to Citizens United. Now we can’t see who is bought and paid for in our own Congress. If money is equal to free speech, then some people get to have bull horns. All men are not really created equal, are they?
This is totally true. Here’s another kicker: you’d think that weapons manufacturers or the NRA or some other segment of society donates more to political campaigns than any other, but, guess what? It’s drug companies!
Here’s another: Most of the larger international drug companies, Pfizer, Merck, etc, spend more money on lobbying than they do on R & D. Yup.
Thomas – would you please share where your brother buys his medications from Canada?
I am 71 and my wife 65. Can you please help with the name of Canadian pharmacy. She needs Abilify and we have prescription. We cannot afford the $480 a month on Social Security. If you can help, thank you, if you cannot, thank you anyway.
If your wife doesn’t have schizophrenia or bipolar disease, and isn’t getting *remarkable* improvement from Abilify, she may well be better off without it. Abilify and similar drugs are often used for behavioral problems in folks with dementia, though pain medications generally prevent behavioral problems better.
Get a consult with a geriatrician for med management, if you can, or discuss it with her doctor. Often, 1/4-1/2 tab percocet 2-3x a day makes an amazing difference for agitation and other behavior problems. And it’s cheap. Treat preventively for constipation, and adjust the dose for best effect. (I’m an FP.)
Every Pharmaceutical Drug Company operating in the USA has an equivalent in Canada, complete with Head Office and for the bigger brands, thousands of employees. As an example, Lipitor is manufactured in Ireland and exported throughout the world. The same drug that is sold in the USA is also sold in Canada, but at a far cheaper price due to our government regulating the prices for pharmaceutical drugs. Currently, 90 tablets at 20 mg of Pfizer Brand Lipitor dispensed from Canada’s largest retail Pharmacy, Shoppers Drug Mart, sells at $249.00 Canadian dollars or $171.74 US Dollars as of Jan 22 2016. You should use caution with Canadian Online Drug companies as many are not representing the true costs Canadian would pay. For example, Canada Drugs is selling same as above for $600.00 approx. and a generic version at $106.32. Just because an online company is on Pharmacy Checker does not mean they are being honest, so really do your homework and truly compare, with Live Chat or toll free telephone call. Once you find an honest company, Canadian’s are known to be very trustworthy and honest business people. But you will find scam artists…
is there any canada legit pharmacy selling without prescription
Some are real brick and mortar pharmacies and some are just clearing houses that take a commission for filling your prescription with a real pharmacy. The one I use, Canadian Pharmacy King is about a half an hour north of the border and will gladly give directions to anyone that wants to visit. They require me to fax them my American prescription and the first time, My ID.so I see no reason why they wold not accept your paper work,in person. There are a lot of phony outfits pulling all kinds of scams on line but I guess you’d be OK in a brick and mortar pharmacy; no riskier than here.
I have used various Canadian pharmacies for years and I had only one problem with any of them. It was with customs, not the pharmacy. I purchase generic Advair for 1/3 the price of the USA pharmacy. Spiriva’s generic is even less. I urge all that cannot afford prices to try it.
Thanks for joining the conversation, Terry. Glad to hear it!
hello terry whats the name of the pharmacy
Gerald D. There should not be any online Pharmacy who sells any sanctioned Class I drugs without a prescription. Mail in is required along with physician contact details and a detailed patient bio form that must accompany the prescription…
I want to know this also. Does someone know a legit pharmacy without a prescription?
Hi Sheryl– Many people buy pills without a prescription over the Internet. This is incredibly dangerous. Viagra, for example, is known to be one of the most counterfeited medications sold online so don’t be fooled by rogue online pharmacies that offer meds without a proper prescription. The best way to avoid that is to obtain a valid prescription and only order through PharmacyChecker-verified websites.
Hi Gerald –
We strongly recommend that you use only online pharmacies that require a prescription.
There are no pharmacies in the PharmacyChecker Verification Program, Canadian or otherwise, that do not require a prescription. Certain medications are deemed “prescription-only” because health experts have determined that without first consulting a qualified healthcare practitioner those meds are not appropriate. Furthermore, studies and consumer experience demonstrate that online pharmacies that do not require a prescription are much more likely to sell substandard or fake drugs.
We’re going to be in Canada over Christmas. Will we be able to arrange with a pharmacy to ship drugs to us after we return home, or is this prohibited by law? We’re hoping to fill a 6 month supply while in-country. But would like to ensure we deal with a legit pharmacy for future use.
Hi Denice –
I’m not entirely clear what you are asking. For regulatory information about buying medications online, including from Canada, you can consult the following information on our website: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacies-what-you-need-to-know.asp#foreignpharmacies.
Many of the sites pharmacycheker recommends sells generic Cialis.
How to you reconcile the fact that according to Lilly, the manufacturer of Eli Lilly, there is no generic Cialis available.
Hi Robbie –
Generic Cialis is available in India, manufactured under India’s laws and regulations. For example, Cipla, a multinational pharmaceutical company, makes Tadalafil. Lilly is aware of this.
Did you mean that generic Cialis is not for sale in U.S. pharmacies? That’s true.
The link to finding an online Canadian pharmacy seems to be broken. Can I access it some other way?
Hi Joan –
I’m not sure what link you mean but if you want to find a Canadian pharmacy check out our listings: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp.
My wife has found that only Celebrex works for her joint pain and her US insurance has made it near impossible to get. Tried the Canadian Pharmacy route again after the ‘generic’ Celebrex might have been chalk for all it’s effectiveness. Mapleleafmeds is on the approved list. No email response after 5 days, so I called and reached what sounded like an India call center. Manufactured in Australia by Pfizer and shipped from Singapore! And they currently have political unrest, so shipment may be delayed a week. A real confidence builder. Cancel that order.
Walmart has a generic version of celebrex on their $4-$10 list. Target is the same, I think.
No wonder people turn to Canada. Hubby got a prescription for Viagra due to cancer and radical surgery. It was going to be almost $400.00 for 10 pills. Of course insurance will not cover which is a crock. Found cheaper and actually went to the brick and motor storefront. Asked our doc for the prescription as the store won’t use the current one. Doc all of a sudden comes up with a coupon as he doesn’t want us to use Canadian. Have to go to walmart as we already know CVS won’t honor coupons or at least our wouldn’t. We’ll see if this works. If we ever get the meds I am going to ask where the meds are made since the ones are from India.. If the American pharmacy also gets them from India, will be having a little discussion with the doc..
Instead of a “pharmacy checker”…why not give a list of legitimate pharmacies ?
Hi Marty – We have a list of verified online pharmacies: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp.
Big pharma has not disclosed a huge dirty secret about generic drugs, and many brad name drugs, sold in the United States. These drugs are increasingly made in India, China and other third world countries. We have countless people who cannot find work in the United States and drug manufacturers are moving their work to dirty and poorly regulated third world countries. I trust medications made in Canada over anything make in India, China, etc. Are medications sold in Canada made in Canada or do they source their medications from the same third world countries the USA uses for generic products? This is a joke. The safety of our medications do not seem to be a concern of big business. Profit is the first and foremost concern. Why has the FDA and the Federal Government allowed big pharma to move the production of medication offshore?
Hi Brian –
I agree with a lot of what you wrote. While Canada has a pretty robust pharmaceutical manufacturing sector, like “American medication,” a lot of “Canadian medication” is also made with active pharmaceutical ingredients imported from India and China. The FDA cannot prevent companies from making medication in other countries. In fact, if it wasn’t for lower cost production outside the U.S., medication sold in the U.S. would even be more expensive.
I think many of the pharmaceutical companies actually do care about safety — its just that too many don’t!! The ones that don’t should be banned from the industry.
This is not a political site but as long as you mention it, they do more than move production offshore. Giant pharma, Pfizer just packed up and moved to Ireland. But then again, Nabisco moved to Mexico and Burger King to Canada. This about a lot more than drugs. Maybe you should take a closer look at the politicians who are going to “save American jobs and stop companies from leaving”. Most will say anything to get re elected
I noticed that you list generic tadalafil on your site, but there is no such thing as legitimate tadalafil as Cialis (tadalafil) is still under patent protection. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Hi Aaron –
Several large pharmaceutical companies are authorized to manufacture tadalafil in India. It is not available for sale in U.S. pharmacies, however.
What is the experience with aromatase inhibitors? Specifically exemestane which is the generic for Aromasin? Want to be careful as is prescribed to decrease chances of breast cancer recurrence or metastatic disease. But is expensive and needs to be taken for five years. Will check pharmacy checker site specifically for Canada Pharmacy Online.
Why do you sure that pharmacies that sell drugs without prescription sell customers different meds from Indian than Canadian pharmacies? They also sell meds by Cipla, Ajanta Pharma, Ranbaxy Laboratories and others…
Canadian pharmacies sell many of the same medications from the same world wide manufacturers as US pharmacies. The difference is the distributor or supplier goes by a recognized US name.
I find it sad that we listen to the hype of organizations like the FDA and WHO. They let things like soy be mass produced and distributed throughout all areas of the food chain. Even though hundreds of studies state that it is not good for human consumption. We are being poisoned on a mass scale and no one says a thing. All we ever hear is give me more. And now I can’t even get online to find a decent Amoxicillin for a foot infection that caused a swollen lymph node without Vipps and Aarp and other tested sites stating that all of these sites cant be trusted. When they are assisting the governments and pharmaceutical companies with what can only been seen as chemical genocide on a mass scale. And if any of you even took the time to study dioxins then you would know I was telling the truth.
I have a prescription for Cialis, I am in the US, can I purchase Tadadafil from a legit Canadian pharmacy with a Cialis script?
i live in australia , i want to buy indocid suppositories for spinal stenosis , am 82 years old , cannot afford the operation , do not want to take pain killers , have scripts for tramadol , do not want them , i want anti inflammatories , do not have script for this .

i do not abuse my medications , can anyone suggest a likely source of anti inflammatory drugs , am fed up with the pain , thanks don rees
My son needs to take a growth hormone for a growth deficiency. This is legit and he has a prescription. My insurance company does not cover this medication as they are too expensive in the USA. I can’t get from Canada but I can from Israel. I found too sources that only sell to people with valid prescriptions. Isra-meds and Israpharm. Do you know about these? We just can’t afford the meds and we do not meet the criteria for a scholarship. These pharmacies have good reps on the web. I think they are clearing houses for several pharmacies in Israel. Thank you! I have looked at other countries but most of this is to sell to adults and they are scams. This is my child so I am not interested in these sites.
I tried to buy generic cialis from GlobalCareRX. My Visa card was declined by my bank. They said the charge was flagged as fraudulent because it was international, coming from China. GlobalCareRX confirmed that the charge did originate from China. That is in fact fraudulent because nowhere on either Global or your website does it say anything about China. Who checks PharmacyChecker?
Hi James –
PharmacyChecker.com verifies online pharmacies and compares their prices to help maximize online access to safe and affordable medication. Online pharmacies that meet our standards of practice are allowed to publish a PharmacyChecker seal and list their information on our site. GlobalCareRx is one of those online pharmacies. According to our verifications, it does not fill prescription orders with pharmacies in China but only with the licensed pharmacies that we’ve verified in countries that are identified in its PharmacyChecker seal profile (Click on its seal).
The information on our site is truthful, accurate and helpful for consumers so I’m sorry but I believe your use of the word “fraudulent” is misguided. Your concern seems to hinge more on credit card processing than on sourcing of medications. You’ll note that VISA has taken aggressive actions that prevent you from using a VISA card to buy medications in Canada or any place outside the U.S. – if you are based in the U.S. See: https://pharmacycheckerblog.com/visa-policies-curtail-consumer-access-to-safe-medicines-online-reminiscent-of-china-or-north-korea.
It’s beyond our current scope of inquiry but I’m going to investigate credit card processing solutions that our members are using, based on your concerns.
I am writing from France. My dad has Parkinson disease and he is treated with Dopamine. For few years he took Amantadine (named Mantadix in France and Symmetrel in the US) and this treatment worked very well on him. Unfortunately, BMS laboratories stopped suddenly to sell this drug and no generic is sold in France. The health of my dad declined following the sudden stop of the treatment. I am looking for Amantadine (or Symmetrel) for him. According to canadian pharmacy this drug need a prescription. French doctor won’t do a prescription for canadian pharmacies, so I need to buy from Idian based web sites. How could I get verified, reliable and trustworthy drugs like amantadine from canadian pharmacies? I would prefer to get it from verified canadian pharmacies than from indian ones although I thing some indians are reliable….
Hi Jerome –
I’m truly sorry that you’re having difficulty obtaining a medication that your father needs. A prescription is necessary to obtain a prescription drug from a pharmacy in our program, whether it’s based in Canada or India. There are online pharmacies that sell medications without requiring a prescription but we believe that they are not meeting appropriate safety standards and they are more likely to send a fake or substandard drug.
How come your dad’s doctor won’t write a prescription and let your father fill the order where he wants to?
There are some ‘prescription required’ pharmacies that will accept a photo of your prescription info label on a previous fill of a maintenance medication, since they can’t do formal ‘transfers’ between pharmacies in different countries.
Are they legit?
I have to take Lamictal for seizures. I tried the generic and had a seizure within 2 weeks. My insurance no longer covers name brand Lamictal. I need to be sure the Lamictal I get is 100% the same as what I take now. Is there any guarantee that it will be?
As to whether Lamactil sold in other countries is exactly the same as the one sold in the U.S.: if it made by the same company, in the same strength and dosage form, with the same ingredients (including all “inactive” ingredients), it is likely the same, but you can double check with the pharmacy before you purchase.
I want to buy some fertility drugs but my prescription is from a clinic in Colombia, where I’ll be doing IVF soon (since the price here in USA is as outrageous as the price of medications!). I need to start few medications here in USA before traveling again to Colombia. My question is: is any of these pharmacies able to fill out my prescription or do I need a prescription from USA? Thanks for your answer.
I’m not sure I understand your question. Online pharmacies that are approved in the PharmacyChecker Verification Program require a prescription from your doctor or other licensed prescriber and some dispense medications internationally through mail order. Does that answer your question?
Without assuming to much, I am guessing that many complaints do not make it on this site.
After going thru a lot to get a prescription to a Pharmacy that, pharmacychecker ( your company) had rated 4 stars, Offshorecheapmeds…I received my fake meds 3 weeks later.
I didn’t think the wait was unreasonable, what was unreasonable was your refusal to follow up.
I will be happy to mail you samples of what they sent me. As well as what I am sending to the FDA and MACLEODS Pharmaceuticals if they really exist.
Who are you and who pays your company?
Hi Dwight –
Thank for your comment and the opportunity to prove that you are wrong about complaints not making it on to our blog.
You are claiming that you received “fake” medication from an online pharmacy in our program. Over the past couple of weeks, I have followed up with you on several emails and looked into the product at issue. I cannot disclose the product you ordered here in a public forum but feel free to do so yourself, if you’d like to. Our research shows that it is a legitimate, authorized medication, and I it was manufactured in a plant registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In other words, there’s no reason to believe that your prescription order is a fake drug.
Our company generates revenue from Verification Program and Listing Program fees, as stated on our website: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/aboutus.asp.
We’re here to help consumers, Dwight. If there’s a way we can help you, then we will. I’ll get back to you today by email.
My son needs to take a growth hormone for a growth deficiency. This is legit and he has a prescription. My insurance company does not cover this medication as they are too expensive in the USA. Thank you! I have looked at other countries but most of this is to sell to adults and they are scams. This is my child so I am not interested in these sites.
I do really hope my advice will help somebody!
I can reveal the truth about those Canadian Pharmacies sites as a FORMER EMPLOYEE of such company in Russia. There are dosens of such companies around here in Russia (i don’t really know the exact number) that are barely legal….Your meds actually come from Russia, Turkey, India, Ukraine….and of course meds are NOT FDA APPROVED as claimed on sites. Basically you just have your health at stake when buying this staff…im not saying it’s not all poisonous….but it’s manufactured in large basements in poor unsanitary conditions.
It’s almost impossible to split such companies because they are really kinda masterminds on cheating.
This business brings more money than you saw on “breaking bad” series so here’s always a shitload of IT guys behind every online site to ensure they work impeccable. All content is generated exactly in those companies so that you’ll never find out the truth…for example…they paste fake seals of quality on sites to look credible, some even have their own call centres with english speaking operators. Theres how it all works…everything is fake, so take CARE because it’s a matter of fortune, some organisms digest those meds ok, but for the other it can be deadly experience.
Thanks for sharing your story. It’s those rogue sites that make the work of PharmacyChecker instrumental to helping consumers shopping online for medication.
Price of cialis 20 mg. I have a RX and I am interested in a cheap, foreign made generic.
Do you have novalogue and levimir????
Hi Hugh –
I checked our website and did not see any of the online pharmacies in our program selling that medication.
The US Government buys all their prescription drugs form the middle east. These drugs are used in VA hospitals, Government pharmacies on posts for all military personnel. All Government Hospitals . The Government doesn’t have the money to buy drugs in the US.
So, any where I can find a listing of legitimate online pharmacies that do not require a script for ADHD Drugs? Do they actually exist?
PharmacyChecker.com strongly discourages you from buying prescription medication without a valid prescription. The risks of buying prescription drugs of abuse over the Internet – controlled substances – without a prescription are even greater.
Have you or a loved one been severely affected by counterfeit pharmaceutical drugs recently? Would you like to tell your story in hopes it never happens to anyone else? We will be shooting interviews next week. If you want to tell your story please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
1. Name, Age, City Live In, Photo (You and/or your loved one)
2. Tell us what happened? How/Where your received the pharmaceuticals? What went wrong? What has been the impact on your life? When did this happen?
3. Best phone and email to reach you and best time to reach you
I need to find a less expensive source for COPD medications: Symbicort and Spiriva. They are incredibly expensive in the U.S. Will I be able to find them from a reputable pharmacy in Canada? If so, could you provide a few source names for me? I am experiencing a lot of difficulty finding them on my own. Thank you.
Hi Peggy –
Those medications are sold by licensed pharmacies in our program. We don’t single out specific international pharmacies so I can’t recommend one or two for you. If you go to our website, type in the drug name, or look for it on this page: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/drug-price-comparisons.asp. Click on the drug name and it’s likely you’ll find the information you’re looking for.
Wife used Northwest Phamacy for at least 4 years..sometimes had to wait or check on shipment but always came through and had no problem contacting them.
The last time I bought generic Viagra for my hubby (several years ago) they did not require a prescription from HIS doctor, rather, they provided a prescription through THEIR doctor. Do any of these pharmacies work on that basis now? He currently has a VA doctor who will probably only give him a prescription for 4 pills/month, and we’d like to be able to get more than that.
Hello Gabriel, I am ordering from Canadian Pharmacy King and they recently had to stop taking cc but with it, also stopped offering their “purchase guarantee” which was a nice bonus. But maybe not as needed if sending a check instead (?). I did have an issue with them taking more money than I authorized via a faxed check but this was resolved…although, they said they didn’t know how it happened. I believe it was a mistake.
Surprisingly, with them not being able to take credit cards, and no “guarantee” offered, their prices went up. In my case by $26. BUT in US this med is $350. CPK has it for $115 inc shipping (new price)!
Question: When choosing an online Pharmacy on your site, does it matter how many locations they have or where these locations are? Would having more locations be better or having less be limiting in any way? Thank you for access to this helpful site! -Karen
Hi Karen –
Online pharmacies that fill orders in more than one location may be able to but don’t always offer the lowest prices. Pharmacies in our program, wherever located, are only allowed to sell products that are manufactured under internationally recognized Good Manufacturing Practices. We provide specific information on regulations in other locations here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacies-what-you-need-to-know.asp#foreignpharmacies.
What if you have a prescription that you received from an ER to hold you over until you could get in with your regular doctor. Is that script good enough to use? I have regular monthly access to this med for my son that is affordable even, but I believe the united states of america is about to experience a national emergency that will lead to people not having access to their meds, so I’m trying to buy a stash so he won’t have to suffer from gout pain and uric acid kidney stones. So is a ER script good enough?
I am looking for a Canadian pharmacy to fill a prescription for rosuvastatin (Crestor). does anyone have any advice of a legitimate pharmacy? I live in Minnesota.
I can help you with that one. Both my wife and I get it from Canadian Pharmacy King I am in the process of reordering for the third time. Our blood tests have been fine. The brand they have previously supplied is Cobalt, a division of Actavis. If you go on line you will see they are a huge generic manufacturer. They say they source world wide so I have no idea where they were actually made but they work as well as Crestor, with none of the side effects of the alternative drugs that my insurance company offered us when they said they would no longer pay for Crestor. BTW, Crestor goes generic in the US in July. There are a lot of pharma companies, like Teva offering Rosuvastatin in Canada. I don’t know how many actually make it there. Where you are in the US should not matter: it’s coming by mail. CPC is in Vancouver,BC. They offer Rosuvastatin in 100 and 200 pill quantities. Make sure your doctor writes the scrip for one of those quantities Expect the order to take a few weeks. I know they carry 10 and 20 mg.strengths.
I would like to buy medications for the treatment of MS such as Glatiramer acetate. I am applying from Iran and I would like to ask that what is the best way to pay and get the medication to Iran.
I have used this pharmacy for 3 years and they have been great.
Typical savings is 50-75%. Highly recommended.
Pat OConner, what is the name and contact information on the pharmacy you have been using?
Quick, seemingly obvious question…. The medication I’m searching your site for is as low as 7USD per pill, and as high as 22USD per pill. If each listed pharmacy is PC Approved, and most are members of CIPA….then (again maybe silly question) Why Not just buy the least expensive one??
It’s not a silly question. Some people prefer to order medications from certain countries and not others even if they have to pay a higher price. Just like this blog post discusses, some people want to buy medication from a pharmacy in Canada and not a pharmacy in a third country that works with a Canadian online pharmacy.
Need a pharmacy that I can order my medication form with no problems that won’t rip me off
Hi Aubrey –
I recommend checking prices and verification information at http://www.pharmacychecker.com.
Looking for a less expensive way to get, with prescription, Androgel itesterone replacement. Or an equivalent product.
I will be in Canada at the end of December. What is the truth about actually going into a pharmacy with my American prescription and getting it filled? I know what the legal wording is but do those pharmacies actually fill a prescription if I’m standing in their store?
I recommend calling a pharmacy in Canada near where you’ll be staying.
Looking to purchase tretinoin online with prescription, there is so much talk of illegal pharmacies, can anyone recommend one?
Yes, I can recommend using the information on our site, http://www.pharmacychecker.com. You’ll be able to find pharmacies that are licensed and sell real medication, dispensed by a licensed pharmacist at affordable prices.
Hi, I would like to confirm if Northwest Pharmacy is certified by PharmacyChecker. I do NOT see that pharmacy in this link (http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp). Thank you.
They are verified by PharmacyChecker.com, as per the seal on its website, which links to this valid member profile: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/profilerx.asp?PCID=B11C7509-0CCC-4C4A-8BAF-237B1AA5914D.
Forgive me if I’m repeating something already said or asked. I was trying to order for the first time from Canada. I chose through Pharmacy checker and CIPA a pharmacy called Canada Drugs. They are only offering me drugs from Barbados or the UK. If I try to reach them I’m only able to reach someone in Barbados. What is the point of having these pharmacies certified in Canada if the drugs are sent from elsewhere. One person at the pharmacy suggested, when I expressed concern, ‘just try them’. Is there a legit Canadian pharmacy that I can call in Canada and that ships from Canada? Thanks
Hi Al, I’m certain that CanadaDrugs.com works with a licensed pharmacy in Canada (actually in Canada), as well as pharmacies in other countries, ones that we’ve verified. If you call and state you want to order from that Canadian pharmacy only, I believe you can.
Obviously none of the drugs we order from Canada are made in Canada but that goes for many of the drugs that our insurance plans provide for us. My drops for glaucoma are made in India and distributed by an American company.
Here’s an example of why the US system fails us. I am prescribed Xifaxan 550 for Hepatic Encephalitis, which costs approx. $1,800 USD per month. Through PharmacyChecker I found a drug called Rifaximin 550 for only $130/month. I was nervous because it came from an Indian manufacturer called Lupin Limited. Upon research I discovered that Lupin is the actual drug developer and licensed it to the US company Salix for exclusive US distribution which over-prices it. Also found out Lupin is the 7th largest generic drug producer in the world! The point is, if you do your homework thoroughly and meticulously check all parties involved (and considering it’s your health and possibly your very life don’t be lazy), you can be comfortable purchasing affordable medications internationally. Start with this site then research all other entities involved and you will be safe.
Are there any places selling my wifes meds? She has been taking Oxycodone, Morphine ER and Vallium for 9 years.
Hi Ernie –
The PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program is closed to and we will not recommend international online pharmacies that offer to ship controlled substances into the United States. There are greater risks to a persons health when seeking controlled drugs online, such as the ones you mention. For more info, see http://www.pharmacychecker.com/buying-controlled-medication-online-has-serious-risks.asp.
You may find lower prices on generic versions of controlled medications at your local U.S. pharmacy using a prescription discount card. We just published the following post about generic Valium: https://pharmacycheckerblog.com/buying-valium-online-to-save-money-try-the-generic-at-your-local-u-s-pharmacy-instead.
If you use a discount card only such as GoodRX, it doesn’t count towards your deductible. It has to process via insurance for that to happen which is a major bummer when the GoodRX discount is better than the insurance company’s.
Good luck getting that. The US government has recently further restricted pain medication so I doubt you’ll find them on line. Perhaps you can find them on the Deep Web.
Controlled substances like many pain medications can only be legally sold by pharmacies with appropriate licenses. PharmacyChecker.com advises against using any pharmacy that is not licensed or doesn’t require a prescription.
yes Harvey, you can be a shill for big Pharma who continue to squeeze every drop of blood out of the American consumer. Most often the drugs are not affordable to Americans on a budget. Do you wonder why consumers are flocking to reasonably priced alternatives? It’s obviously worth the “risk” to get drugs you can actually afford. These same generics are made in in the same place as the name brands and often by the very same companies.
Given the USA charges 45 dollars a pill for viagra, I continue to purchase via Paypal, 300 pills for $350.00 from online Canadian Pharmacies. They make good gifts for my friends and family and I guarantee they work.
And if you are persistent, you will be able to get good pain medication at very reasonable prices.
All my stuff is made in India –the same place that makes many of our “Made in the USA” drugs.
I’m at a loss….what pharmacy?? Website??
You should only purchase medication from pharmacies that have been verified as safe and reliable. To see some of the pharmacies PharmacyChecker.com has verified, please go to the Ratings Page: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp.

Which Canadian Pharmacy do you use to get your Viagra?
Do they require a prescription?
It differs from State to state.
You are right
John, and antianxiety (psychological meds as well.The majority of providers do not care if someone is having a hard time financially. But if you have paid insurance you have far more latitude. In other words a person can get the RX’s they need.
Need to know if you sell hydrozone
I’m sorry, I do not have any listing for that medication.

Hi, I am trying to get the medication Erlocip 150mg (Cipla ) for my father and I can not find a safe way. Can you tell me how you do it?
The generic version of this medication (Erlotinib) is listed here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/generic/erlotinib-prices
Cipla? I was ordering through a company in the US from India but apparently they have problems now and cannot longer get what I need. So you truly endorse this company?
Can u give me the name of a site i can buy from..no rx..i need oxycodone..been scammed alot
We recommend that you don’t buy prescription medication without a prescription from your doctor or other licensed provider. Pharmacies listed on PharmacyChecker.com require a valid prescription. See this post by our CEO:https://pharmacycheckerblog.com/your-prescription-is-required-to-order-from-a-pharmacychecker-approved-online-pharmacy
We also discourage you from trying to buy addictive prescription drugs – such as oxycodone – that you were not prescribed over the Internet (or at all). Only rogue online pharmacies sell controlled drugs without a prescription and many will just take your money or worse sell you a counterfeit or otherwise dangerous and ineffective medication.
hi can you send me a link for your india or cipla pharmacies, as my boyfriend needs pills for erecticle disfunction thanks Sharon
That user is not a PharmacyChecker staff member, but I can answer your question.

May I know which website you are buying from??
I went to Cipla’s website and found that they do not sell drugs online – so how do you get thsm? Thanks!
Bill, Cipla is a pharmaceutical company. The user was probably referring to CIPA, the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, which certifies online pharmacies. Many CIPA pharmacies are also verified by PharmacyChecker.com.

I’m sorry, but PharmacyChecker does not recommend ever purchasing medication online from a pharmacy that doesn’t require a prescription. Take a look at this statement from “Benefits and Risks of Using an Online Pharmacy”:

Looking for Rytary, new to market drug for Parkinsons. Has anyone found this? It’s costing me $450/month and insurance has not adjusted formularies yet. In a bind, to say the least.

Hey was wondering if anyone can give advice on a legit online website that sells legit cialis?
We do not recommend individual pharmacies. However, you can search for that medication on pharmacychecker.com, where you will see prices at verified international online pharmacies.
I am confused by the group of online pharmacies: Mapleleafmed, Onlinecanadianpharmacy, Doctorsolve, Canada On-line Healthlink, Prescriptionmedications.in, and qualityprescriptiondrugs. All have the same mailing or contact address but claim not to be the same company. They are all “verified” as legitimate, but all practice independently and while one does take credit cards, all the others require personal checks mailed or electronic or Am Ex. Considering that the majority of them require financial information to be sent “offline” -especially personal checks, how are these still verified as safe?
Sometimes for marketing reasons, one management company administers several websites. For example DoctorSolve Healthcare Solutions Inc. administers Mapleleafmeds.com, Onlinecanadianpharmacy.com, Doctorsolve.com, and Qualityprescriptiondrugs.com which have all been approved in the PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program and Listing Programs and are monitored by these programs. Canada Online Healthlink operates Candrugstore.com, which another online pharmacy that is in our Verification program. You can see profiles for these pharmacies on our Rating Page: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp
NOTE: Prescriptionmedications.in is not verified by PharmacyChecker.com and is not connected with these other pharmacies. It is most likely a rogue so we cannot recommend this pharmacy. Rogue pharmacies do not meet safety standards. See this page for details: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/rogue-pharmacies.asp.
As for payment, pharmacies that are verified by PharmacyChecker are required to safeguard consumers’ personal financial information, whether it be electronically, by fax or by mail.

While comparing pharmacies, I did not see my drug dosage (mg) listed. Is that something that will be taken care of when the prescription is provided? Do I need to call the pharmacies regarding available dosages?

To compare prices of your medication at verified online pharmacies, you can go to http://www.pharmacychecker.com and enter the name of the drug in the big search box. You will then be taken to a page where you can select the dosage required.

How can I obtain Zolpiderm 5mg without a prescription? I have taken it for 8 yrs without any side effects and would wake up refreshed and ready to go. Since turning 65 and being a female, I am told that it’s now illegal for doctors to prescribe it. I have been given several alternatives but they all give me headaches and I feel groggy for hours after getting up. Nothing works as well as Zolpiderm for me.
The trouble is that my doctor won’t give me a prescription. Your help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
PharmacyChecker.com does not recommend ever trying to purchase medication without a prescription, especially controlled medication. To read about some of the reasons why, please see this page: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/buying-controlled-medication-online-has-serious-risks.asp.

Hi Sam –
You can compare prices here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/brand/onglyza-prices. It’s up to the consumer to choose which online pharmacy or country they wish to purchase from.
It looks like the Onglyza sold in the U.S. is a product of Ireland: https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/static/c5116390-e0fe-4969-94cb-e9de5165fbab/current/onglyza-2-5mg-lbl.jpg. It’s likely that this same version is sold in pharmacies worldwide.

Gabriel Levitt, President, PharmacyChecker.com on February 2, 2016 at 4:51 pm
“The PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program is closed to and we will not recommend international online pharmacies that offer to ship controlled substances into the United States.”
Mr. Levitt’s comment was referring specifically to the fact that our program is closed to online pharmacies that market and sell controlled substances for international shipment. Aciphex is not a controlled drug and online pharmacies in our program do sell it internationally. You can find prices for Aciphex on PharmacyChecker.com here: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/brand/aciphex-prices
Hi, Henry, I’m new to your website, a recent retiree, shocked by the $$$ hikes in my Rxs. In price comparisons I found Estring, noted as Estradiol, at about $30.00 more than the listing identified only as Estring (same dose). Is one a brand, the other generic? Thanks, j
Estring and Estradiol both contain the same medication, however Estring is a brand that comes in a ring preparation whereas the Estradiol listed on pharmacychecker.com is a generic that comes in pill form.

Hi Fred –
PharmacyChecker.com is an online pharmacy verification and drug price comparison company that provides consumers with affordable medication options to fit their individual health needs. It is not a pharmacy, does not sell medication and prescription orders cannot be placed on its website.

Hello. I take Xarelto and it is hugely expensive. One month’s supply is around $575 US. I get help from Medicare part D but I’m almost in the donut hole. Will Medicare participate in Canadian-sourced meds? If so, how to get it’s reimbursement? Thanks….
Generally Canadian pharmacies do not accept U.S. Insurance. But the good news is you can save a great deal of money on Xarelto by buying from verifified online pharmacies. You can check prices for Xarelto here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/brand/xarelto-prices.

Z-Pac (azithromycin) 250mg. I like to keep a few pacs on hand. Once a year I get a head/chest (goes to chest) infection and the z-pac knocks it out so quickly. But to get the meds I have to see an MD. After some 40 years of watching this occur (not each year but..) I know what it is… and how “I” respond but finding a reliable pharmacy that will provide w/o an active script (I have a photo copy of an old one but…) is nearly impossible.
PharmacyChecker.com does not recommend attempting to purchase prescription medication without a valid prescription. Pharmacies that do not require a prescription from a doctor are not looking after your needs as a patient.

The “Canadian Pharmacy” I made the mistake of ordering from is in fact a bunch from India. How was I to know they would begin calling me every day to the point of harrassment, even after I explained in graphic terms that i would never order from them again because of the harassment. To order they do require your phone number. If you do not want to be harassed in this manner, I would suggest that you find another company. I don`t know how to determine which “Canadian Pharmacy” is which. Please accept this as a cautionary warning.

Tryying to byViagra at ledd than my prescrition price.
I was told about your site from my Nurse but cannot find my medication on your website. I am looking for Contrave for weight loss. I have a prescription from my doctor but it is so expensive and my insurance does not cover.
It appears that the online pharmacies in our program that are listed on our site do not sell that medication.
do you sell temapazem. you cant get it in the u.s tyvm
PharmacyChecker.com doesn’t sell or process orders for medication. We verify online pharmacies and compare their drug prices. I do not see price comparisons for that particular medication on our site.
How do I find a legitmate Canadian Pharmacy?
Go here: http://www.pharmacychecker.com. When you find a Canadian-based online pharmacy make it clear to them that you only want your medication filled in Canada, not any other country in which they might have partner pharmacies.
Seeking Canadian pharmacy that fills Rx from Canada, not from other partner-countries.
Call and ask the Canadian-based online pharmacies in our program: http://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp. They are owned by or work with actual Canadian pharmacies. Tell them clearly you want your medication to come from a Canadian pharmacy – not a partner pharmacy.

Can you provide me with a true Canadian pharmacy?

Hi Marjorie . Just yesterday i was prescribed augmenton for a skin puncture wound that was infected. when i went to get it filled i was shocked to hear 87 dollars for 40 pills. SO THIS IS WHAT I DID..I asked the pharmacist if they would kindly call my prescrribing doctor and asking my doc if he would check his resources and re write the prescription for a less expensive option ? The doc gsaid that cephalexin 500 mg pills taken every 6 hours would be a safe equivilent to the original augmentin. Since i was at walmart pharmacy i was able to get the cephalexin for a total of 5 dollars…I learned that walmart has a large list of medications of all types that all cost 5 dollars . REMEMBER THIS IS USING NO INSURANCE . Why not try this. STAY WELL / GOOD LUCK Joe
How do I actually go to a doctor and get a script to take to Costco to fill?
Well, here’s an answer depending on where you live but, if you’ve had anything traumatic happen in yourfamily lately, just visit your family physician. Tell him you are having E.D. problems ever since ,”tell him your trauma story, and if you don’t have one be creative. He will ask you if it is all the time that you have this, or can you still preform once in a while?
This is a trick question but if your answer is all of the time you will walk out with it.
Footnote to that…if you happen to be on Obama Care, the viagra is covered.
Peace…hope my info Info is still up to date.
I buy from a Canadian drug Company and when receiving a 90 tablet
Prescription I contact Astra Seneca and give them the batch numer and other identifiers and find if this comes from one of their manufacturing
I now know that this shipment is not counterfeit.
Thanks for sharing the research that you did!
A point on this one, I work in anti counterfeiting (items, packaging, etc.) in the UK. Checking batch id’s, etc. with the manufacturer is a very good idea, but also ask about where and when that batch was distributed (maybe it was a batch distributed in Aus, so why did it/could it end up in the US)- counterfeiters also counterfeit the box, labels, id’s, etc., the good ones do. The bad ones, the majority, are too lazy. To save a few bucks, risk your health/life??
To avoid buying counterfeit medication, stick to online pharmacies approved by PharmacyChecker.com. That’s what we’re here for!
Why do prices vary so much for the same medication?
I’m finding some at $174 for a 90 day supply and then the same medication for $360 for the same 90 day supply?
Hi Dennis – Prices vary so greatly because the same medications have different prices in the U.S., Canada, UK, Turkey and other countries.
One touch test strip 100 ct
I have no difficulty purchasing medications from Canadian partners in other countries. Firstly, they are much less expensive. Drugs from Canada are as expensive as in the US.
Hi Gabriel – I agree with you. Due to its proximity and the media attention on Canada as a good place to import medication from, however, many Americans often feel more comfortable buying their medications from our neighbor. If that’s what they choose then that’s what they should get.
I want to see if I ordered sifidel off your company I can’t remember which co. I felt with they used to call me but not lately
I’m looking for benzos to help my anxiey?
Hi Ariel – You might be able to find lower prices on PharmacyChecker.com by comparing prices at local pharmacies in the U.S. But the international online pharmacies approved in our program do not sell controlled medications to the U.S.
Unlike viagra or the generic version you will need a prescription for those. If i am I correct and you fiND that place…plz come back and let me know.
jiminy cricket. I’ve read the first 5 paragraphs and my head is spinning. You keep repeating the same thing over and over and over and over again. A fact about the FDA, they don’t deserve your respect. Yahoos. Farce. There isn’t a word that comes out of the fda that I would believe.
Actually, I think the FDA does a lot of good work protecting the public health — but they also make lots of mistakes and are too influenced by politics and the drug companies.
Here’s how the FDA works, from my own personal experience: During the 80s, a Dr. out of Ohio put together a bunch of metal plates and bolts and and labeled them “steffi plates.” He attempted to get them approved by the FDA for lumbar use. The FDA didn’t approve them for Lumbar use. So, the Dr. says, we’ll try and get them approved for use in the wrist area. FDA APPROVAL. The Dr. then commences giving lecturs to orthopedic surgeons here and world wide I suppose. Needless to say, the Dr. and the FDA may as well have given out loaded guns. 60 minutes exposed this fraud in the mid 90s. I’m certain people committed suicide because of the pain they went through. I’m fortunate, but I make no mistakes when it comes to believing the FDA.
Pharmacy checker is basically a useless service, I have not come across a single online pharmacy listed on pharmacy checker THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE A Rx, So whats the point? Any pharmacy that requires a script is gonna be legit, ergo nullifying the use of pharmacy checker…
Hi – We’re a critically important service for the very reason you refer to us as useless. Yes, the online pharmacies in our program all require a valid prescription and we diligently verify that requirement and many others. Ordering and taking medications that require a prescription without having one can be dangerous to your health. Furthermore, you’re more likely to get a counterfeit or substandard drug from an unverified site that does not require a prescription.
Which Canadian pharmacy does your dad use to buy his medications?
Hi Jackie – It’s a fair question but we don’t recommend one online pharmacy over another. In my dad’s case, his medications came from a licensed pharmacy in Canada.
WHY are HMO’s, PPO’s, Non-Profit Hospitals not allowed to negotiate drug prices? (The ONLY exception is the V.A.) Elderly people on Medicare are charged list price. Medicare (taxpayers) pick up some, but not all of these exorbitant prices. Lobbyists are more powerful than human life.
Why doesnt pharmacy checker list which sites are VIPPS acredited?
Hi Jason –
PharmacyChecker will provide pharmacy and price information on our site for those online pharmacies who are members of our verification program, meaning they have been vetted and verified. VIPPS-accredited sites are welcome to apply to our program.
How do I locate a legitimate pharmacy that will
fill my Viagra script ? I am on medicare & my supple
mental med policy will not cover it.

Will my American insurance company cover purchases in Canada?
Most insurers will not cover personally imported medication but you could ask them.
I have bad pain could i buy pain pills like Percocet and deliverd to my house
The PharmacyChecker.com Verification Program is closed to all international online pharmacies that offer to ship controlled substances into the United States. We strongly advise against purchasing controlled drugs, like Percocet over the Internet without a prescription. Here’s more on this topic: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/buying-controlled-medication-online-has-serious-risks.asp.
HI MR LEVITT. Are their any canadian pharmacies that can be verified or trusted that will sell and deliver controlled substance medication IF A PERSON HAS A LEGAL WRITTEN SCRIPT ? The meds are >> oxycodone immediate release 30 mg tablets and 100 mg morphine time release tablets . These are prescribed long term for spinal failed surgeries x 5 , with chronic pain & permanent major nerve damage. The meds are given by a legit pain mgmt. center in the USA. The generic morphine slow time release costs $450 for 30 tablets / 100 mg AND The generic oxycodone immediate release is $580 for 240 tablets / 30 mg .. There is no prescriptiton plan being used , and this amount is paid every month for years , and will continue. Its important to try and locate a trusted source out of the country , preferrably in Canada to obtain the monthly meds. KINDLY ADVISE THANK YOU. J.S
I know the prices on some controlled medications are too high. You can search on local U.S. pharmacy prices for oxycodone here: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/generic/oxycodone-prices. We do not allow non-U.S. online pharmacies membership in our Verification Program that sell controlled medications into the U.S. For more on our policy and position on this issue: see https://www.pharmacychecker.com/buying-controlled-medication-online-has-serious-risks.asp.
Need Tresiba touch insulin pen
I cannot find the following medications on your website
Brovana 15mcg / 2ml inh sol
Budesonide 0.5 mg / 2ml vials
Both of these are nebulizer medications. Do you know if these are available and how do I go about finding them.
Here is a link to Budesonide prices: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/generic/budesonide-prices. Online pharmacies in our program don’t offer Brovana.
Thank you.very helpful.
I don’t understand the prescription process. A nurse at my primary care physicians office does not believe that my doctor can fax a prescription to a pharmacy that is outside of the United States.
When I go thru the order process, it wants to take my money BEFORE getting to the prescription part of the process.
Can anyone clarify how to get the prescription???
I believe that your provider can fax a prescription to a pharmacy outside the U.S. but they might not be willing to do so. Can you get a paper copy of the prescription and send it to the pharmacy yourself?
Regarding the process, if you place an order online for a medication then, depending on the online pharmacy, your card might be charged but often it’s not charged until your medication ships. If you have questions, then call the online pharmacy. I”m assuming it’s verified by PharmacyChecker.com. If not then we can’t vouch for its credentials and safety.
Hi, where i can get accutane generic 40mg drug? I have prescription but in US it cost 350$ for 60pills. Its very expensive.
Can I buy oxycodone and 2 milligram Xanax bars on this site? How do I obtain these prescriptions without first seeing a physician? Do you have an online physician?
Hi LaDawn –
You cannot buy medications on this site. PharmacyChecker.com evaluates online pharmacies and compares prescription drug prices. We do not approve online pharmacies that don’t require a valid prescription and are adamantly opposed to the sale of controlled medications, such as those you mentioned, without first seeing a licensed prescriber.
Will my Medicaid help pay for my prescriptions on this website
Hi LaDawn –
If you’re buying a medication online for personal import then I don’t believe Medicaid will help. Medicaid has pretty good pharmacy coverage but I know that people are falling through the cracks, too.
With obamacare i couldn’t afford insurance. I hope that changes with Trump. We’d only die for sure if Killary had gotten elected. I’ve had success with online pharmacies that don’t require a prescription.
Btw. We all know there has to be a cure for cancer. But the FDA is in the pockets of big pharma.
Who made pharmacychecker god. What about CIPA. CIPA pharmacy member is licensed and regulated by the government for safety.
Hi Barry –
CIPA, the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, is a trade association of Canadian pharmacies that operate websites selling medications from pharmacies in many countries. Many but not all of those online pharmacies are verified by PharmacyChecker and have been members for a long time.
I was looking into Saphris pricing. It’s $1100+ in US .. even with copay it would cost me $222
But my health insurance will not approve it until I waste my time, ruin my body, and worsen my family life with 2 to 4 months of meds my doctor and I both agree are not the best option for me.
To my knowledge there is no generic, at least in the US.
I have seen generic asenipine listed at what looks like $50 -$70 dollars in these canadian pharmacy sites. And the name brand is still about $110 –$250 range
I’m wondering if anyone can let me know if this generic is/should be the same drug being made.
Basically should I just stick with the higher option.
It’s still a bit high, but not impossible for me.
Does anyone know how Social Security Disability views using canadian pharmacies.
My doctor is ok with using them, my health insurance will not cover the drug that will be best for me ….
I don’t know how my LTD insurance company will say about it either?
Its maddening the 5x cost paid in the US … and that if i am deemed AMA …. there goes my income.
Any thoughts are predicated
I have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and react to many of the excipients in medications. I take 6-8 Claritin per day (per MCAS specialist MD) and cannot take generics because they have inactive ingredients I can’t tolerate (defeating the entire purpose!). If I buy “Claritin” from a good Canadian pharmacy, do you think I could count on receiving actual Claritin rather than a substitute loratidine?
I believe you can count on getting the brand from a verified pharmacy in our program. Don’t buy medications online from sites that are not verified by PharmacyChecker or another verification organization.
There is the possibility that the brand in Canada is slightly different than in the U.S. I recommend calling the manufacturer and asking if the brand Claritin sold in Canada is the same where you live. Canadian online pharmacies often partner with pharmacies in other countries as well. So just to make sure you get the brand from Canada, call the pharmacy before ordering it online and make your prescription needs clear!
Most US prescriptions are for 3 months or 90 days, will US doctors write them for 100 days? Or will the pharmacy supply 100 days if the prescription says 3 months or 90 days? Not sure which we would order at this point need to know before we go to doc next time
Hi Jan. If you purchase medication online from a verified international pharmacy, you legally can’t order more than a 90-day supply at one time.
Thanks Lucia, than why does it say 100 on some of them? They aren’t legit? Tahnks
Hi Jan– Depending on the medication, 100 tablets doesn’t necessarily equal a 90-day supply. The actual quantity and/or days’ supply may vary for each drug. Your doctor’s instructions on how to take the medication, state and federal dispensing guidelines, or how the medication is packaged may impact the quantity and/or days’ supply you can receive. The best person to talk to regarding this is your doctor as they can speak to your specific medication.
PharmacyChecker-verified international online pharmacies: https://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings.asp
I have been ordering my prescription drugs from Online pharmacies for the last 3 years, but I’m sure pharmacychecker accredited online pharmacies. They are cheap and reliable to buy prescription drugs. Recently I have received my order from medsengage.com and I have saved approx $280 on a single prescription. So is it worthless? Probably No!
It is the best source to buy prescription drugs online.
Hi James, Thank you! With your permission, we would love to feature this on our testimonials page (https://www.pharmacychecker.com/testimonials.asp). Let me know!
looking for saxenda injections
Hi Diane, Unfortunately, none of the online pharmacies in the PharmacyChecker Verification Program currently list prices for Saxenda. You may find a modest discount by using coupons to use at your local U.S. pharmacy offered here: https://www.goodrx.com/saxenda?drug-name=saxenda
Wow! thanks for sharing article and helpful information .
Great article! Thanks for sharing this site with us.
I see most people have US prescriptions, I’m based in Ireland, I have a valid Irish prescription issued by a doctor here, would pharmacies accept this and ship to Ireland?
Yes, absolutely. If a medication requires a prescription in your country, you must present a valid prescription from a prescriber in your country to your chosen accredited online pharmacy. https://www.pharmacychecker.com/online-pharmacy-ratings/
Is there a pharmacy on your list that has codeine, hydrocodone, or oxycodone, that does NOT require prescription? I have fibromyalgia and have been told to reduce my pain meds and eventually quit. Problem is paracetamol and even cannabis, do NOT work.
Hi Mike– All of the medications you’ve mentioned are controlled substances. Under the Ryan Haight Act, no controlled substance (such as Oxycontin) may be delivered, distributed, or dispensed by means of the Internet without a valid prescription. The Act also provided a definition of online pharmacies and added the requirements that online pharmacies dispensing controlled substances via the internet: (1) obtain a modified CS registration to operate as an online pharmacy and (2) comply with internet website disclosure requirements—as described in the Act. Additionally, the PharmacyChecker Verification Program is not open to pharmacies outside the U.S. that ship oxycodone, or controlled medications of any kind to consumers in the U.S.
